Lancer and NHL alums join men’s hockey coaching staff

Former NHLer Todd Warriner, Lancer alumnus Mike Christou, and Michigan native Frank Furdero will join head coach Kevin Hamlin behind the bench for the Lancer men’s hockey team’s 2019-20 campaign.

A former Windsor Spitfire drafted in the first-round by the Quebec Nordiques, Warriner played for the National Hockey League’s Toronto Maple Leafs, Tampa Bay Lightning, Phoenix Coyotes, Vancouver Canucks, Philadelphia Flyers, and Nashville Predators. Hamlin credits that experience as giving him an “incredible amount” of knowledge.

Putting history in perspective and expanding the base of knowledge regarding historical events is not only UWindsor archivist Brian Owen’s calling, it is his passion.

“What we initially may see as possibly a worthless, brown, aged document, may actually have very important value,” says Dr. Owens. “It can really transform the way we think about things. That is what I feel is the most important part of my job as an archivist – being able to take the historical record, interpret it and sew it into other things we already know to make it an exciting document.”
